Cousin Zamy’s Romanian-style Grilled Tomato Salad


When I was in Israel this spring, I was treated to a wonderful dinner at my cousin Zamy’s house in Netanya.  There was one dish, in particular, that I could not get enough of, a grilled tomato salad that was an accompaniment to the barbecue.  

Like my father, Zamy is from Romania. They share the trait of being the consummate welcoming host, loving to feed their guests sumptuous foods.

Zamy was gracious enough to send me the recipe.  I have been waiting for the tomatoes in my garden to be just right to make it myself. He told me that not only does it go with barbecue, but it is also a tasty addition to cheese sandwiches or omelets.  So we had a nice light summer dinner of cheese omelets and Zamy’s grilled tomato salad.
